Rev. Schmid, together with Rev. Ulrike Schmidt-Hesse, is also in charge of the duties of EMS Liaison and Executive Secretary of EVS which was vacant after the departure of Rev. Andreas Maurer. They share this responsibility until Rev. Dr. Uwe Gräbe takes office next May.
It has been some-time since Rev. Schmid last visited JLSS, so he had a lot of catching up to do. With all his responsibilities and various capacities relating to Schneller schools he had so much to do in JLSS. He had meetings with the director and other members of staff including EMS staff and volunteers.
Rev. Schmid is at home when he is in JLSS, so he caught up with old friends and visited the various departments in order to see the developments of the last two years. He also had a very special time when he visited Mr. Youssef Mourad in Zahle, reminiscing on various incidents and the history of JLSS from its very beginning. Rev Schmid Cutting the Cake

During the weekly gathering of teachers and staff on Thursday 23 March there was a nice surprise for Rev. Schmid. This year is the 50th year of dedicated service of Rev.
